Oh, I read your question the wrong way. You want to set it to 'yes' :)

Anyway, that's where you can configure it -- the default is 'ask'.
You can also configure it on a per-server basis, see the default
~/.subversion/servers example configuration file for details.

If you don't have it, create a new config dir like so:
  svn help --config-dir=/tmp/newconfigdir
and then read /tmp/newconfigdir/servers.
